Jesus is God in the Flesh

There is no place in the Scriptures that says the three words "Jesus is God," but we don't need those exact words to determine that Jesus is God in flesh. 


John Chapter 1

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.


Matthew Chapter 1

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.

20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.


John 10:30

“I and my Father are one.”

John 8:58

“Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” 

1 John 4:2-3

“Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:-

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”


1 Corinthians 8:6

“But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.”

Colossians Chapter 2

9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:


Revelation 1:17

“And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 

Revelation 2:8

“And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;”


Jesus was both God and man united in one divine Person. He could not suffer and die with respect to His deity, the moment on the cross when He asked why hast Thou forsaken me; was when God separated from Him, allowing Him to then die in flesh.


Jesus did not die from crucifixion; He died literally, of a broken heart.  Crucifixion is a very slow, agonizing death of suffication; Jesus died in six hours. 

 

When He prayed to “let this cup pass” in the garden, His prayer was answered. He was not praying to not fulfill prophecies, He was praying for his tremendous burden to be lifted, that His heart would hold out. Thus He said “this cup” as in, the one I’m drinking from now; not the one I’m here to “drink.”


When he said, “It is finished.” He was referring to the fulfillment of the law, and the establishment of the New Covenant with man. To be resurrected, the Perfect. Sinless Sacrificial Lamb, through whom all might be saved, who had before abused their free will to rebel against God in sin. 


God is love; He is not a bad, mean God, out to throw good people into hell. He is a holy, righteous, just, God; duty bound by His Word, to punish all sinners in hell. With no respect of persons, the only qualification is, will he call you a sinner or a saint?


“Are your garments spotless, are they white as snow? Oh, be washed in the Blood of the Lamb.”
